Description of problem:
When setting the screen saver settings via 'control-center', it turns out
that these are properly applied for the current session. However, when you
relaunch 'control-center' inside the current session, it shows the default
settings, and what is worse, the new settings are not applied after
reopening a new X session.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open 'control-center'
2. Change screen saver settings
3. Close 'control-center'
4. Reopen 'control-center'
5. Check screen saver settings
6. Logout from X session
7. Login to X session
Actual Results: Default settings of screen saver are active, in
particular the DPMS settings.
Expected Results: The customized screen saver settings should be active.
Additional info: none
We (Red Hat) should try to fix this for the next release.
downgrading xscreensaver fixed it.
I have tried a bunch of previous versions of the 'xscreensaver' package, but
none of them fixed this problem. So, which version are you talking about? By
the way, the current rawhide version of xscreensaver is 3.33-3 which is rather
an upgrade than a downgrade with respect to the version included in
the 'Roswell' public beta release (3.32-4)!
